Mausoleums: Benefits Of Pre-Planning
At Life Remembered, we understand how important it is for you to find the perfect space to honor and celebrate the life of your loved one, and that’s why we offer quality mausoleums as part of our memorial selection. But what is a mausoleum? We’re here to answer all your questions and help you explore the benefits of investing in a mausoleum for your loved one.
What is a Mausoleum?
Also known as a tomb or sepulchre, a mausoleum is an external free-standing building constructed as a monument enclosing the interment space or burial chamber of a deceased person or persons. A mausoleum may be considered a type of tomb, or the tomb may be considered to be within the mausoleum. Typically made out of stone, brick, granite, concrete, and other durable materials, these monuments come in a variety of shapes and sizes and typically feature ornate carvings and inscriptions.
Mausoleums are often associated with large cemeteries or religious institutions such as churches because they provide an additional layer of protection from theft or vandalism. In Ancient Egypt Pharaohs were buried in elaborate tombs while those in Ancient Greece and Rome were buried beneath pyramids. Today's smaller versions offer families the opportunity to build monuments on their own properties.
What are the Benefits of a Mausoleum?
A mausoleum is not only an aesthetically pleasing way to honor lost loved ones but also provides many practical benefits. One advantage of having this type of memorial for your loved one is that it can save you money in the long run because grave markers are usually more expensive than pre-built structures like those offered at Life Remembered. Furthermore, maintaining a mausoleum is relatively straightforward; regular cleaning with non-abrasive products will keep any dirt or debris from discoloring its walls over time.
Another notable benefit of having a mausoleum for your departed family member is that it gives them greater protection from damage due to weathering since they are built out of sturdier materials like stone or concrete which are less vulnerable to erosion caused by wind or rain. Additionally, this type of monument offers more privacy due to its enclosed nature which allows families to have more intimate visits without being disturbed by others visiting nearby gravesites.
Finally, purchasing a pre-made mausoleum provides families with greater flexibility when deciding where their loved one should be laid to rest since they can choose whichever structure best fits their budget without worry about construction costs. This option also allows them access to high-quality craftsmanship which ensures that the final product will last well into the future.
